    There are two ways to conquer / John Adams

    There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by sword, the other is by debt.

    John Adams

    Facts and the left are mutually exclusive. Unfortunately, the left always opines about those pesky “unforeseen consequences” that we always warned them about long beforehand.

    • Grouchy says:

      AMEN~! What is the old saying, “Act in haste, repent at leisure”??? The hell of it is, the left never repents, NOR learns from experience.

  3. CW says:

    Truer words were never spoken. The Left’s pretense that they can circumvent the facts has led to serious problems for this nation.

    • Grouchy says:

      CW, – Hammer, meet Nail-head. And will continue to cause problems as long as we have a one party nation. Yes, it SUPPOSEDLY is a two-party system, but in actuality, there’s no difference once one or the other is elected.

    Obviously the left has NEVER understood the meaning and context of this quote, GF. Good find.

    • Grouchy says:

      Greetings, Clyde. As the Texan has asked, on more than one occasion, in reference to the left, “You’re a SPECIAL kind of Stupid, ain’t ya?”
      ‘Nuff said.

    Good quote. Shame some people manipulate a lie their way through truth though

    • Grouchy says:

      Some folks don’t know the difference twixt a sewer and a Rose Garden, either, Uriel. And THAT is a shame, as well!
